    I would not be surprised if Legion #1 pulls in a decent number. DC has been pushing the heck out of it, even going so far as to offer free Legion rings with the first issue. However, any success the...

    So it seems Action's 11,000 unit boost last month was more likely due to the card stock variant than Naomi's presence, unless speculators had interest in Naomi's first appearance with Superman, but...

    True, but I feel like this reasoning is used as a catch-all for dismissing the numbers we do have. And the DC people have talked about how the digital market hasn't really been growing for them. We...

    True, but it's still sold better than many (non-Batman) first issues we've seen in recent years, and most likely it will level off higher than a number of ongoings.

    Yeah, it's selling better than a lot of DC ongoings. So my feeling is that it's more that DC doesn't want to than DC can't.

    I mean, just looking at the sales, it's not surprising that Lois and Jimmy aren't going to be ongoings. On the other hand, other titles under the Bendis umbrella like Wonder Twins and Dial H seem to...

    That's a stretch. Well, it probably happened off screen is not a satisfying answer. We have to actually see these reactions a head of time for it to make sense with his character. Bendis does it...

    Yeah, bland vanilla team to match a bland vanilla Jon. All the dialogue was pretty much interchangeable and sounded more like Bendis than any particular character and the character moments he even...

    The Year of the Villian special variant cover also probably provided a pretty big boost too. But I agree the Naomi appearance was probably a factor too. I don't think there was a year of the villain...

    Keep in mind this is before the card stock variants come into play. Batman 78 didn't have one, but Batman 79 might join the top ten before the end of the day.

    Plus, Jon as a kid seemed to be more appealing to modern youth culture. If DC thinks Legion is going to do a better job of that, they may be in for a rude awakening.

    DC has tried to bring in new readers to the direct market certainly. But kid readers? Not really, no. Especially not in the last decade plus. With the exception of superhero TV show tie-ins and Super...

    That's the point. If it isn't an either-or thing, then DC might as well explore new avenues of appealing to a wider range of people within the direct market too. That includes kids. Super Sons books...

    I don’t agree. If other modes of distribution were DC’s main concern, they’d be promoting it more than they do the monthlies. That isn’t what’s happening. Promotion and advertising has mostly been...

    This sounds cool. I love Man of Steel, but always stopped there as the sheer amount of Byrne’s stuff seemed intimidating. This might be a good way to finally try it.

    It's definitely unfortunate, and really highlights the missed opportunity that came from aging Jon up. Having ten year old Jon deal with his secret identity being out could have been immensely...

    We'll see, but I do think you underestimate the impact young Jon made. Tomasi struck a cord for a lot of people and I do believe we will see that impact endure.

    The solicitations for 18 are already out (as it drops in December), so I doubt it's that, but maybe.
